We pay our respects and acknowledge that we are located on the lands of the Whadjuk Nyoongar peoples and also pay our respects across Australia to the Traditional Owners and Elders past and present.
For over 20 years The Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet has provided support to those working in the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health sector by making research and other knowledge readily accessible. In this way, we contribute to closing the gap in health between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and other Australians. The HealthInfoNet is headed up by Director Professor Neil Drew and includes a team of researchers, librarians, IT specialists, business management, organisational and marketing an administrative experts (link to staff page)
We are a Level II Research Centre within Edith Cowan University (ECU), Western Australia’s oldest tertiary education institution and newest university. Awarded university status in 1991, ECU is a large multi-campus institution serving communities in WA and a significant cohort of international students (more). The HealthInfoNet is housed within Kurongkurl Katitjin, the ECU Centre for Indigenous Australian Education and Research
Our work is made possible with the support of generous funding partners. Core funding is provided by the Australian Department of Health. We are extremely grateful to all our funders for their ongoing support. (View our full list of funding partners).
Users of this web resource are warned that it may contain images and/or references to deceased people,
which could cause distress or sadness particularly for some Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
The resource may also contain words and descriptions that could be culturally sensitive and which might not normally
be used in public or community contexts. For example, some information may be considered appropriate for viewing
only by men or only by women. The HealthInfoNet respects such culturally sensitive issues, but,
for technical reasons, it has not been possible to provide materials in a way that prevents access by a person of the other gender.
Users are asked to respect this cultural protocol.
The Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the lands and waters of Australia and the Torres Strait.
We respect all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people—their customs and their beliefs. We also pay our respects to Elders past and present, with particular acknowledgement to the Whadjuk people of the Nyoongar nation, the traditional owners of the lands where our offices are located.
